My HP Color Laser Jet CM1015 MFP started printing all my blue color with a drop down shadow


There could be several reasons for this. Try the below steps one after another to check if this fixes the issue.

Step 1
The moisture content of the paper might be uneven, or the paper might have moist spots on its surface as a result of environmental humidity. Store the paper in a moisture-proof container. Try removing the top few sheets of paper from the paper tray or use paper from a different source (such as another ****), or try a different brand of paper.

The paper lot is bad. The manufacturing processes can cause some areas to reject toner. Try a different kind or brand of paper.

Step 2
Run the MPF cleaning utility from HP ToolboxFX
Cleaning of the Toner as well.

Step 3
Replace the Cyan(blue) toner as it may be low on ink

Laser head and paper rolers need cleaning geting speckles. Have drum out but how do i get it them and what is best to clean them with

Spots on the laser glass would show up as white vertical stripes in your print.

The drum unit has a soft plastic blade inside it to constantly clean the drum as it turns. Sometimes a clump of toner gets caught under the blade, but that usually shows up as a narrow band of spotty or gray stuff down the page. The clump may carve a groove in the drum, too. The cure is to replace the drum unit, unless it's new, in which case the cure is to make the store replace the drum unit.

In the back of the printer is the fuser, which runs the paper between hot rollers to bake the powder into the paper. The rollers are coated with Teflon or similar stuff, to prevent picking up toner and laying it back down further down the page. With age & use, the coating fails, and spots appear. Look for a pattern that repeats every 3 inches or so as the roller comes around.

Brothers are also prone to spot due to a bad toner cartridge. Take the toner cartridge out of the drum cartridge, hold it over a sheet of paper or two, and try to shake toner out of it. A little toner spill is normal, but if you get a pile under one end, a seal has gone bad in the cartridge. You need a new toner ctg.

Every manufacturer wants you to spend your money on their own supplies, of course, but in the case of Brother laser printers & faxes, refilled toner cartridges can sometimes break your machine. At the end of the cartridge is a wheel that stirs the toner inside; it's engaged by a thing in the machine that comes out as you close the toner door. Brother uses toner with smooth, round particles in their cartridges. Some refillers use toner that's just as fine, but ground to rough shapes. It resists stirring enough to sometimes break the gear inside the machine, making for an expensive repair. That's not your problem here, but you should consider that if you're headed to the store for new toner.

Our printer is leaving black spots on everything it prints and no matter what I do (change cartridge/clean out) they get worse and worse. What do I do?

hello, you might want to do a half test, i will explain, when the printer starts printing, open the front cover after paper has started to pick up and has gone halfway into machine, pull toner cartridge out, and check print, if the black spots are there, then the problem is toner, if not then it would be fuser.

Brother MFC-7420 just started printing a shadow image

Sounds like a bad drum cartridge. Pull the toner/drum cartridge out of the machine and set it down. Press down on a (blue?) tab to release the toner cartridge, and you can lift the toner cartridge out of the drum cartridge. There is a cleaning blade in there - a soft plastic blade that rides against the drum and scrapes off toner that didn't get transferred to the paper. If it gets stuck off the drum surface, images repeat a few inches (one drum circumference) down the page.

A new DR-350 drum unit should fix it. have the machine's power on when replacing it. While the door is open, touch the CLEAR key. The display will read "REPLACE DRUM?" or something like that. Press 1 for Yes.

Toner stuck on green roller of cartridge so i'm getting poor print quality

You need to replace the cartridge. it is faulty. there is a spot on that cartridge that is not properly magnetized so it is retaining toner instead of releasing it. you can clean it off but will most likely continue to have the same problem. Clean it with a lint free cloth or paper towel DRY. Do not use any chemicals or water if the toner is salvageable then that would ruin it.
